masterpiece. completely untethered from reality and without any acceptance of responsibility. >> with his wife, dotty, and four of his children in the courtroom, sandusky choked back tears as he delivered rambling, defiant, unrepentant testimony. i'm filled with emotion and determination, he said. i didn't do these alleged disgusting acts. sandusky and his defense team promised an appeal inassistant they were not given sufficient time to prepare for the trial. >> today, it will be jerry sandusky's rights and you'll say, waited wait a minute, i need more time. >> his words were no match of the gut wrenching testimony of four of his six victims. it will be inside me for ever.
5:01 pm
you said you were the tickle monster so you could touch my 11-year-old body. finally, he forced me to touch him. he called it horseplay. only later did i understand the sexual assault. i'm troubled by flashbacks of his naked body. one by one, they detailed the physical and emotional anguish inflicted by sandusky and the betrayal of the father figure they became to trust. >> beforehanding down the sentence, the judge addressed the victims directly. he said it's for your courage and not for the assault that you will be remembered. live from bellefonte, pennsylvania, i'm andrea mccarren, back to you. >> chilling testimony even now. andrea, thank you. jerry sandusky's refusal to admit guilt, we have seen this before and in fact, in our area. the city of falls church was rocked by the child molestation
5:02 pm
case of michael gardner. peggy fox, you covered this trial start to finish and you have an exclusive interview today. >> i sat down with the parents of one of his victims. their daughter was only 10 years old when michael gardner molested her and another girl at her daughter's slumber party. when mr. rice heard what mr. sandusky said, it was like deja vu. despite the fact michael gardner was convicted of sexually abusing two young girls, close friends and family members, including his wife, former falls church mayor, robyn gardner, refused to believe he did it. on his sentencing day last month, gardner offered no apology. instead, he insisted he had been wrongly convicted. dan and christina rice, whose daughter was molested by gardner were not surprised. >> gardner and sandusky continue to say that they are innocent, why do you think? >> because they are still
5:03 pm
fighting it. also, they have wives that love them and families that support them. if they ever admit that they did do it, then they could lose that and you know -- >> it's all they have. >> i think that's what we see in the statements of these men. there's absolutely no regard for the human beings that they hurt purposely. >> psychologist casey fisher has done extensive research. child molesters are narcissistic sos sociopaths. >> they tend to have created systems, webs of lies in their lives. they experience a rush and a sense of enjoyment from engaging in these dark fantasies and acting them out. >> not only did both sandusky and gardner insist they were
5:04 pm
wrongly convicted at their sentencing, but they both also blame their victims. >> somebody accuses someone else of a crime, they end up getting put on trial every bit as much as the person accused. >> now it was the rice's daughter and the other girl who was molested who told their parents immediately the next morning and then the detective got that dna evidence and both the interviews with the girls and their testimony and that dna evidence is what helped convict michael gardner. but you know, the girls said they knew detail because what they learned in school. but the rice said, i wish i have been taught what to do when it was happening. >> call for help right away. but again, denial continues. >> absolutely. >> thank you, back to you guys. >> frederick county sheriff's office is looking for a driver who tried to coax a girl into his car. it happened this morning at a school bus stop on pleasant

5:06 pm
on personal recognizance, pending. the judge shot back, it's a little too late in the game for that and ordered brown to appear in person and placed him on a curfew from 11:00 at night until 6:30 in the morning. the judge told brown there won't be three strikes, there will be one. and he has already used that and if he comes before the judge again, he will be ordered to jail. sources close to the case say it's part of his plea bargain agreement, he'll get probation for that bank fraud plea, which included his resignation from office. >> tomorrow, we have the first sentencing in that d.c. federal corruption probe. >> not a public name, not a public official, but a key figure. howard brooks and former staff are on mayor gray's campaign. he was part of a scheme. that would be sulaimon brown.
5:07 pm
as you might recall, we reported first here on 9news that howard brooks wore a wire and that enabled prosecutors, federal authorities, to nab thomas gore who took a plea. >> i have to ask quickly, did kwame brown have any real explanation to why he didn't call in? >> on one occasion, he said he forgot. he was in superior court responding to a misdemeanor charge. >> obviously the judge was not buying it. >> not even close. >> thank you, bruce. sky 9 out flying over the potomac today where the ceo of martin is facing a $1,000 fine for cutting down trees. seems he wanted to improve his view. the washington post reports robert stevens cut down almost an acre of protected land in the farm community. some of those trees around 180 years old. park police opened a criminal probe and montgomery county fined stevens. redskins owner, dan schneider, who is one of his neighbors, also cut down some trees to

5:26 pm
that is all it took for this to go up in flames. the consumer product safety commission tells us mattress fires are one of the leading causes of fires in homes. so in part of fire prevention week, the agency is urging you to make sure your smoke alarms are working and that you need to do some preventive maintenance on your home heating and cooling equipment. >> have your furnaces and fireplaces and space heaters clean. not let them be close to furniture or to curtains so you can avoid a fire. >> now the cpsc says cooking is the number one cause of fires and estimates about 2300 people die in their homes due to fire every year and thousands more suffer fire related injuries. so, you want to be sure that your family has an escape plan in place and that you practice it often. >> the owners of the original california tortilla store in bethesda are on the move. the new location, just across the street from the original

5:28 pm
5:29 pm
5:30 pm
food stamps are a necessity for thousands in the district, but stretching that allowance into meals can be difficult and comes at the expense of nutrition. some people are taking a food stamp challenge to learn more about the difficulties of living on little and here's their story. >> 140,000 residents in the district rely on food stamps to
5:31 pm
put food on the table. the average weekly allowance for one person, $30. >> it's really challenging to get enough food to last you through the week and also to buy, you know, what you want to eat. >> alex ashbrook is the director of d.c. hunger solutions. an organization that works to end hunger in our community. ashbrook is taking part in the food stamp challenge. ashbrook has $30 for 21 meals, only about $1.40 a meal. this morning she bought everything on the table and she will have to stretch this into breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next seven days. >> i estimate that i have enough food to get me through five days or so. i really had to be conscious of what i was putting into my cart and i felt like i was playing the price is right, making sure i was going to hit $30. >> ashbrook says, she may eat a sandwich. if she bought a loaf of bread, lettuce and a tomato, $12.76.
5:32 pm
she would stretch all of that across multiple meals. this week, she was forced to buy bread with bologna and spinage, which was on sale. that would cost only $5.57. a big difference, but the cost is nutrition. but the sacrifices allowed her to stretch the money she had. >> food stamps to be even more beneficial should be expanded and funded more so that people can eat throughout the month. >> after the challenge is over, ashbrook says she is fortunate and can go back to eating what she wants. but for too many, living on food stamps is a reality they struggle with every day. in northwest washington, 9news. >> the tsa says it seized a loaded gun from a passenger at reagan national. this happened friday at a security check point. the tsa says the 9 mm semi- automatic handgun was in the man's carry on bag. that gun was taken away after passing through an x-ray machine. now the man faces a state

5:34 pm
delivery nurse. she is still supported in her cancer journey by their son, and good friend. she still credits buddy check 9 for finding her breast cancer. >> you have done buddy check 9 for so long and touched so many people. and you certainly were completely responsible for me finding my lump. you are responsible for saving my life. >> now deb is paying it forward the buddy check way. she reminds women in person about the steps to good breast health. >> nice to meet you. >> wcbc -- >> she is convinced the local radio station to do it on air. >> by the way, how is your cancer in remission? you caught it early? >> it's not in remission, it's gone. >> for a year, they have been airing reminders on the 12th of the mind. they call it we care breast check day, reaching listeners in cumberland, frostburg, and kyeser, west virginia. >> we have gotten calls
5:35 pm
thanking us for doing it. >> the general manager. >> you really don't know how many lives you truly touch, but if we make a difference in one, it's worthwhile. >> thousands of people that have heard it and it's just a few of them that says oh, i haven't done my breast exam. if they stop and do that, you and i will have accomplished a major goal. it was 100% because of you. you are my role model. you are my role model. >> and in honor of andrea roane and buddy check 9's 19th anniversary, the sponsors of our buddy check 9 text alerts, safeway, and washington radiology associates each donated $1,000 to the making strides against breast cancer walk. andrea would like to give a special thanks to the prevent cancer association and the lome

5:39 pm
caught on tape, a close call for a california liquor store clerk. check this out. he was just about hurled off of the planet when a pickup truck slams right through the wall. this all went down in sacramento. you can see the driver of the truck can be seen back up. customers help the owner who was trapped under the rubble of the collapsed wall. the cops were able to track down the driver. i guess that means he didn't stop. that means he drove off. he was arrested and charged with felony dui. >> beverages. >> the owner suffered broken
5:40 pm
legs from those beverages. that's pretty bad. he is expected to recover. now we go to another close call. this one for a beloved family pet rescued from a burning home in arlington, texas. >> we bring this to you from cell phone video, which shows a firefighter coming around the corner with leah the dog limp in his arms. within seconds, rescuers delivered oxygen through masks. bringing her back to life. after an hour of hard work, leah raised her paw, her head, and firefighters smiled. >> it's a great feeling to see these big burly firefighters all gathered around working on a small little dog, trying to bring it back to life. >> rescuers went through five bottles of oxygen and three to four breathing treatments on leah. the same treatment they would administer to humans. >> i guess leah is a member of the family. >> that's right. now to a poor pooch to a fit of sneezing.
5:41 pm
monique anthony has this. that's so cute. she says she was overcome by black pepper from the family's dinner. that's what started this. when he was finally able to catch his breath, they have worn the little guy out. >> was he done? >> sneeze, shake, sneeze, shake. >> he is worn out. >> the whole body was sneezing. all right, still ahead, you like to use your cell phone? you want to stay connected? you want to do it everywhere? what about an on airplane? our take on that. we'll talk more about that coming up next.
5:42 pm
5:43 pm
5:44 pm
we are kicking the funky graphic, that means we are just saying all the things you have been talking about all week long. anita and lesli are here. a lot to talk about, including cell phones on planes. apparently, you and i can't use our cell phones on our domestic flights, but a few others, you can. those airlines allow it. should they loosen up the rules so you can talk on your cell phone? it will give you something to do on those long flights. >> for goodness sakes, no. you can put whatever you want in front of that.
5:45 pm
no. you know, there's nothing more annoying than a walk down the street or department store and hear someone talking loudly on their cell phone. that's what happens when you talk on the cell phone. you have a tendency to talk louder than you normally would. it's annoying. what is it that you need to say? >> pass the time. pass the time. >> as you get to a certain point, your ears are all stopped up, so you are talking louder. the difference of being in the grocery store is you can move. you are stuck right where you are. you cannot move. and i still worry about some of the telecommunications. the rule was in place for some reason, some concern, and if it means i don't get to use my cell phone, i'm good with that. i think the difference is, these airlines like virgin and other ones have their own cell phone towers attached to the plane. so there isn't the same issue with communication and radio
5:46 pm
waves being emitted by the cell tower and whether that will have some problem with the plane to function. you don't have those same issues. and they aren't -- our planes aren't like that yet. >> we'll have to push the mute button and move on into putting in long hours. a lot of folks like to work smart and get a lot done, but not stay late. managers look at how many hours you are looking in. is that really fair? >> i think this is something that really comes up. for me, it became an issue when i was a mom. because i was trying to cram so much more in to get home, get back, make sure everything is done. so you learn to work more efficiently. yet you don't want to look like the one that is slacking off. so it is leaving early. i do think that we have to give kudos to working efficiently. there's no other way to do that and manage a family life. >> just because somebody is working longer, doesn't mean they are working smarter. it doesn't mean that they are
5:47 pm
getting anything done. i mean, as working parents, we come in here and we do the best we can. at the certain point, we have to go home. we have a second job. we also are the ones who probably get up really early in the morning or stay up late at night to finish a script if we have to. so, i think that work should be a function of being efficient, getting the results that you are supposed to get, and not necessarily being at work from sun up to sun down. >> people locking on their e- mails and playing games on their computer. >> what are they doing? >> and staying long hours. >> free cell for three or four hours. a lot of folks have been layed off in our economy and in fact, apparently some of them are millionaires. in 2009, 2400 people were getting unemployment earned a million dollars or more, had assets to that level. congress is thinking about getting rid of unemployment insurance. is that fair? because you are talking about mean testing unemployment benefits.
5:48 pm
>> the gut reaction is yeah, maybe it's not fair. the truth is, these same people pay for that benefit. and so there's no income requirements for social security. there's no income requirement for medicare. and they pay for these benefits. so we might not feel sympathy for them with their houses and their cars and their jets and their villas, but they pay for the benefit. so technically, they should get the benefit. >> it under minds the purpose of the program. >> of course it does. >> the purpose of the program was to help those who needed it. not millionaires. >> purpose of the program was to help those who lost their jobs. and it's not means tested. >> in some of these cases, they looked at people whose spouses earned a lot or whatever. so there were varying factors involved and they said what lesli said, i earn the benefit to collect this unemployment while i lost my job. but it does thicken your crawl a little bit. we shouldn't hate, we should try to emulate. >> how about that. >> that's what mitt romney
5:49 pm
would say. let's move on to serena williams who says she used to compare herself with her taller, more slender sister venus and she admits to having big boobs and a massive butt. she wanted to look like venus. what does that mean when one of the greatest athletes has body issues? >> you said it with a straight face. >> look, the fact that serena had a bodacious butt was no surprise to me. >> and a whole lot of men took notice of it. she always looked good to me. i'm not gay, but serena always looked good to me. >> so you're not gay. >> everything about her. >> i think women are always so much harder on ourselves and we have a really different standard sometimes even than men on what we want our bodies to look like. in that article, she said she turned to yoga and pi lalates.
5:50 pm
